France wins Group C after serving up Russian Federation 2018's first goalless game

Christensen, who is one of the few Chelsea academy graduates to earn regular playing time for the first team, was impressive during his nation's first two games.

The highlight of today's fixtures is Nigeria's game against Argentina but before that highly anticipate fixture is France vs Denmark and Australia vs Peru.

Denmark vs France kicks off at 3pm on BBC One.

Thirty-six games in Russian Federation had failed to result in a goalless stalemate, but neither France nor Denmark ever looked like scoring in a tedious affair.

France and Denmark will face off this week, and the victor of this game will walk off the field owning the top spot in Group C. France now sits in first with 6 points with two wins, while Denmark is in second with 4 points due to one win and one draw.

In its first match of group play, Denmark handed Peru a 1-0 loss to pick up three points.

The 70th-minute introduction of Nabil Fekir brought some much-needed impetus to France's play, with the Lyon midfielder ruffling the side-netting with a speculative left-footed shot from a hard angle, moments after replacing Griezmann who was once again well below his best.

Cahill is bidding to become just the fifth player to score in four different World Cups.

The trip is the first lady's first high-profile public appearance since she underwent surgery for a kidney condition on May 14. "I don't know why she did it but I think her heart is in the right place and she's doing the right thing", said Bill Hillman.

"We did what we had to do, and we got the result we came to get", Dalsgaard said.

"That hurts the cohesion a bit but it's good that the whole squad feels involved", Deschamps said.

"We cannot be only focused on Christian but as I said he's got the key role in his team so we need to look after him".

Yussuf Poulsen was suspended against France after picking up his second yellow card of the tournament against Australia.

Five teenagers have scored multiple World Cup goals: Pele (6), Edmund Conen (4), Manuel Rosas (2), Jose Altafini (2) and Michael Owen (2).

"It has not ended up a very exciting match because the Danish team were satisfied with a draw as it meant they would qualify".

Steven Nzonzi, who also made his full World Cup debut against the Danes, preferred to focus on the collective aspect and not the individual.
